Silverlight applications consist of a user interface described in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and a code-behind file (or files) containing the program logic. XAML (pronounced “zammel”) is Microsoft’s XML vocabulary for describing user in-terfaces and is also used in Microsoft’s Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)—the preferred user-interface technology of the .NET Platform as of version 3.0.
Silverlight currently runs in Internet Explorer 6+ and Firefox 18.104.22.168+ on Windows XP SP2 and Vista, as well as Safari 2.0.4+ and Firefox 22.214.171.124+ on Mac OS X. Support for Windows 2000 and for the Opera browser is planned in a future release.
Silverlight 1.0 focuses primarily on media and supports programming only in Java-Script. Its primary purpose is to take advantage of the increasing popularity of web-based video to drive user adoption—it is well known that users are willing to install software to watch video. Microsoft also provides a service called Silverlight Streaming that allows you to distribute video-based Silverlight applications for free.
